Rep. Jeff Weninger told KPHO one idea would be to allow families to install cameras in the rooms of their loved ones so they could be monitored remotely.

A Hacienda HealthCare spokesman said the organisation was co-operating with authorities.

Officials with Hacienda Healthcare announced their CEO, Bill Timmons, has resigned from the company.

"This woman has been here for 10 years and then all of a sudden this baby is born", she said.

The tribe confirmed the events surrounding the birth at Hacienda HealthCare in a press release obtained by ABC15, saying the patient "has been in a persistent vegetative state and coma for over a decade". According to agency documents, Hacienda HealthCare later corrected facility "deficiencies" that contributed to the incident.

"I can't believe that somebody would bathe her daily for nine months and never know that she wasn't having a period, that she [was] growing in her midsection, that nurses weren't keeping track" of her weight, the person said.

The woman's identity has not been reported, and it's not known if she has a family or a guardian.

Bruce Levine of 670 The Score quickly responded by saying the Sox were unlikely to offer more than seven years to either player. That could then leave the door open for the Nationals to make a similar offer to the one they reportedly made in September.

In a statement, board member Gary Orman said the facility "will accept nothing less than a full accounting of this absolutely horrifying situation".

Karina Cesena says that her trust with Arizona's Hacienda Healthcare has "definitely been broken". Employees only realized that the woman was pregnant when she began to make moaning sounds while she was delivering the baby.

The announcement came a day after the company's CEO resigned following reports that the woman, left in a persistent vegetative state for almost a decade after a near-drowning, had borne a child.

DISTURBING DETAILS: "None of the staff were aware that she was pregnant until she was pretty much giving birth". Alejandro Benally, Chief of the San Carlos Apache Police Department said in the press release that "this matter falls under the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department". Arizona Department of Health Services found that in 2013 a male employee at the facility was making inappropriate sexual comments about patients bodies and was subsequently fired, and in 2017 the facility was reported for not offering privacy for patients while showering.

"I wasn't there. I clearly don't have firsthand knowledge of what happened", Meyers said.

A new protocol that was reportedly put in place at the facility since the birth requires male staff needing to enter a female room to bring a female employee with them. The staff member remarked that one client with intellectual disabilities had been placed in a sexual position.
